"Another Fruitcake"

Jail for ‘Rambo knife’ attack

A hunting knife similar to that used in the attack

A 23-YEAR-OLD man stabbed his flatmate with a large ‘Rambo-style’ hunting knife because he suspected he was having a relationship with his ex-girlfriend.
The Royal Court heard that Paul Allan Slater attacked his victim as he lay on a sofa, plunging the knife through his duvet and into his foot as he tried to defend himself.
The blow cut through a tendon and led to the victim bleeding profusely and leaving a trail of blood from his flat in Gloucester Street to the Accident and Emergency department at the Hospital.
Liverpool-born Slater, who came to Jersey last year, admitted committing a grave and criminal assault on his flatmate on 10 December last year at a flat in Gloucester Street and obstructing a police officer on 20 November at the Weighbridge.
Yesterday the Superior Number of the Royal Court – which convenes to hear the most serious cases – sentenced Slater to three years in jail and ordered that the knife be destroyed.

  1. What's the point destroying something that anyone can go and buy anyway? Flog it on eBay and give the proceeds to charity :)
